Could maybe do with a shave. Not sure what it is, but it doesn't swam and harass me like the flies - so it's allowed to live. :)

It's a robber fly, family Asilidae. They capture other insects on the wing and pierce them with rigid mouthparts then suck them dry. Luckily they have no interest in humans although they can inflict a painful bite if caught by hand, I have firsthand experience. Nice capture.

@robv Thank you! :) I was wondering how i would find out what it was and was struggling trying to work out how to google it. Shall keep my hands away from them "just in case". :)
